The Formidable Lizzie Boone
  • The Greater Manchester Fringe

What do you get when you combine a wedding ring, burlesque and Pacman?Well, if you're Lizzie Boone, you might get therapy...Lizzie will pull you into her world for a night of drama, healing and dark humour.Centred around a therapists office, this one-woman show explores the intricacies of humanity through a woman who loves vodka with lemonade and a cat called Lionel.Lizzie catapults us through her life; from the torment of school bullies to darker experiences and chaotic spirals; the pieces of her life that jammed together, eventually pushing her over the edge and into her recent breakdown.With lively voice-overs bringing to life an array of characters from soothing therapist Marie to wild child Debz, amongst others, this play is bursting with soul and humanity.A burlesque dance scene also features, showing off the sensual and theatrical side of burlesque and highlighting the art of tease to be a way of finding your own spark and celebrating your womanhood. Trigger Warning: Contains references to mental health/breakdowns and sexual assault.So join Lizzie Boone this September for a night of drama, dark comedy and maybe a nipple tassel or two...

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society.
